Let's Face the Music! is a 1964 studio album by Nat King Cole, arranged by Billy May. It was recorded in November 1961, and released three years later. [2]

The initial Billboard review from February 29, 1964 commented that "The fine blend of Cole singing is beautifully melded with the smart, witty and swinging backing supplied by Billy May...The tempos are mostly in that grand, finger-poppin middle tempo that is just May's cup of tea'".[3]
